Costa Del Sol Arsonist Arrested

Local police have arrested a 60 year old woman from Marbella, who is suspected of starting at least three forest fires.  Police received a tip off about a woman in a car who had been spotted at the locations of three fires.  When they found her and searched the vehicle, combustible material was found along with several lighters.

She is suspected of being involved in a fire on the 22nd August at Bello Horizonte when 40 homes were evacuated, a fire near the Hospital Costa Del Sol at Los Monteros on the 29th August, and another fire also at Los Monteros on the 2nd September.

This arrest comes after a Frenchman was also arrested for starting a forest fire, whilst trying to smoke out insects from his home.
